This is a chain style can holder, you can connect them as much as you need.
Move one side slightly up to make inclain that prevent the can from falling down (it works fine even if its level).

thanks for the files, works great!

You should make the ends of the holders curved around so u could add a pole in it from the tip to bottom; to allow it to be locked to make it safe around kids

HAving a real hard time printing the last part . . .the infill fuckes up my printer even at low speed it just rises up on the print and the head is forcing its way thru it ? anny ideas ? using prusa control to print it :-(

First atemt, Prusa mk2s 0.4 mm nozzle PLA:

  • 0.3 mm layer
  • 70% infill
    failed af 85% :-(
    ATM printing at 0.2 layer and 50% infill

What u recoment for material and print setting ? will PLA 0.2 mm 20% infill be ok ?

I just used 100% infill since it will be holding weight (not a lot, but still) and be around for hopefully a few years use. Printed about a dozen pairs just fine on my MP Mini Select V2.

Nice and simple. I was going to design something similar but for a completely different purpose - gift wrap paper rolls. Thanks for sharing.

Good Job!! thanks, i need this!


should spray can can be stored sideways?

I am pretty sure you are not. I read the book Rust The Longest War by Jonathan Waldman. One of the things described is that metal containers are carefully designed with storage orientation in mind. The seams on the top can easily fail if the liquid is in direct contact.

Yeah if you look at commercial spray can holders they all keep the cans upright.

i scaled mine down to half size to use it for the "apple Barrel" paint tubes and its working fine

Hope somebody make it like a tree, 2 positions per section. I think it'll be ideal for wall mount. I think holding places better to make with "pitch" or/and bottom protection or Your white wall 'll be gray few weeks later.

Printed yesterday and like it. Thank you for posting the design :) I did have trouble with the side tabs for mounting snapping off, but I think that's due to one of my print settings, not the design. I've been mucking with number of shells and infill %.

Would be great to add an appendage on the 'topside' to help hold the can in place for mobile applications. Kind of like a snap in mount.

Snap in mount would be difficult because each can has different size. What about adding an Elastic Band ?

Genius. Thank you for this.

that's a genius design you came up with.

I normally don't say this, but you should patent this man! you would make a mint!
I have so many cans in my garage, they take up lots of cabinet space. lots of garage mechanics around here have the same issue. if you market these, they would sell like hotcakes.

Thanks for saying that, it's too late to patent it since it went public :( .
But I'm happy that I came up with something useful.

I'm printing at 20% infill... hopefully strong enough X P

I think it will be fine if u have 3 perimeter outlines.
Let us know how it gonna turn out

Any plans to make it where it can be put on pegboard? Would be nice!

I don't have one! but I will try it out

How cool. I think i'll print a few of these for the shop. Thanks for uploading

I'm glad to hear that :)
